Showcase Saturday – Raquel and Filipa P!

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency —  a successful Toronto talent agency representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring the beautiful twins Raquel & Filipa P.!

An introduction to Raquel & Filipa:

Raquel: “Hi, my name is Raquel. I am 26 years old and I’m an early childhood educator. I was born in Portugal and moved to Canada when I was 3 years old.”

Filipa: “Hi, my name is Filipa. I am a client coordinator for a real estate firm. Raquel and I are 5 minutes apart, making me the oldest twin! (I get to tease her about this forever)”

Why did you get into modelling/acting?

“Modelling and acting has always been a passion of ours. Ever since we were little we participated in church plays, school plays and always took drama classes whenever we had the opportunity. People would always tell us “the camera loves you two”.”

How has your experience with MAX been so far?

“Our experience with Max has been great so far. We’ve had a couple auditions, which have been a great experience for us. We really enjoyed the acting classes provided by Max Agency, we felt like it definitely encouraged us to be more confident in front of the camera and people. We are really excited to see what’s in store for us!”

What do you like to do in your spare time?

“You will usually find us at a coffee shop, or reading a really good book that we can’t put down. On other days we like to keep active, playing soccer, going for a jog, dancing or getting in a nice workout at the gym.”

What is your dream role?

“Our dream role would be being stars in a movie or show. We would love to have our own movie/show series one day.”

What’s it like being twins?

“Crazy. The good kinda crazy though, if that makes sense haha. It’s a roller-coaster of thinking alike, saying the same things at the same time, switching classes and fooling our parents.
It’s amazing growing up with someone who not only looks EXACTLY like you but also has the same interests as you. It’s the greatest feeling knowing that your best friend is literally your other half. It’s quite funny at times when we’re just out for a walk, at the mall or simply at a restaurant enjoying a meal, people are constantly staring at us like we’re not from this world…until they approach us and ask “are you ladies twins”? Haha this is the most frequent question we get asked all the time. We love being twins, we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

What’s the best advice for someone getting into the industry?

“The best advice that we can give is every time you walk into an audition be confident, be positive and believe in yourself because if you don’t believe in yourself no one else will. Take in all the experience you get from your auditions and don’t feel discouraged if you don’t get the part. We’ve learnt that each audition is a stepping stone to prepare us for future opportunities.”

Showcase Saturday – Taquana & Javielle

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency —  a successful Toronto talent agency representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring a lovely set of twins: Taquana & Javielle!

An introduction to the girls:

Javielle: I am Javielle and she is Taquana, we are 15 years old. We were born in Jamaica. We moved to Canada 2 years ago, we currently are in grade 10.
Taquana: Totally different weather from Jamaica, but we are adjusting

 

Why did you want to get into modelling/acting?

Javielle: Our mom told us that before we were born she used to model and ever since then we wanted to follow in her footsteps.
Taquana: Yea what she said. And I like the spotlight, perks and the exposure that comes with it. It seems fun!

How has your experience been with Max so far?

Taquana: I did an audition sometime in the summer and it was a really good experience. I was really nervous for it though but overall it was a good experience. We also did the teen acting classes and those also boosted our confidence and gave us an insight of the business. Much to say, we are totally excited!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Javielle: We really like dancing like a lot. We also run track, swim, sing (even though we aren’t good).
Taquana: We also like to volunteer.

What is it like being twins?

Javielle: It’s been a really good experience, well the only experience, since I don’t know what it’s like not being twins. I really enjoy having someone to talk to and laugh with all the time, we have so many unspoken moments where we know what is being said!
Taquana: Sometimes, for a split second, its kinda weird looking at someone who looks just just like you. I remember one day, we were in the dance studio at school and I looked in the mirror and saw Javielle sitting down and I had to do a double take! At that moment I couldn’t understand how I looking at myself and I was also seeing myself sitting down!

 

What is your dream role?

Javielle: I would really like to dance in a music video for a big artist and do commercials.
Taquana: I would really like to star in a movie, walk on the runway and do commercials.

What advice would you give someone entering the industry?

Javielle: The best advice I could give to someone is to read their contracts. Read the fine print, ask questions about some of the things in the contract. Make sure you understand what you are signing.
Taquana: I would say just to be confident in yourself and remember that a tiger can’t change their stripes so you shouldn’t change yourself. You can change your mindset, but never who you are.
